Thermal Results

While we did expect a tad more performance from the MA140P, we find that it is a half a degree behind the original design. It's showing, so far down the list looks bad, but the reality is that the MA410P is just less than seven degrees from the best cooler on the chart.

Still using PWM to control the fan, the MA410P falls even further behind the Pro 4. With the company it keeps on the chart, we do have to say it is beating an AIO, but looking at temperatures, it is closer to the least performing cooler than it is to the front of the pack.

Pushing the fans as fast as they would go, we find that Cooler Master does not leave much meat on the bone. There are less than two degrees to be gained by doing so, but it does push the MA410P just slightly better than average in this chart.

Noise Level Results

In our first run, with the processor at stock speeds and PWM in control of the fan speed, we saw 1080 RPM reported as the maximum speed. We took a sound reading at said speed, and the MasterFan 120 AB registered at 27dB. Not bad at all.

Running the test, in the same manner, just this time with an overclock applied. The noise level does not increase as much as we thought it might. The fan was spinning at 1350RPM when we took the 32 dB measurement seen in the chart.

In the grand scheme of things, 43 dB is not all that bad for a 120mm fan at full speed. While we nearly maxed the fan out at 1965 RPM, the increase in noise is not justified for just a couple of degrees of efficiency.
